A great teaching tool

I want to thank all the Moms that called or wrote when I started posting these videos. I wanted to post this one because it really shows the patience and awareness you have to have as a teacher or parent to get what your child is trying to tell you.

With the first question we can see that she is really trying with her arms going out then up and down. You can almost see the light bulb go on when she finally gets herself to choose horse.

We have really noticed how maybe people can get confused by the way she answers. We see her arms going out a an-ok let's see here- kind of thing as others were seeing it as always choosing the middle,neutral or false answer.

We wanted to post this one because you can see the confusion and frustration in her whole body language when she is asked the same question too many times. Remember that your apraxic child's thought process has to begin again or start all over again every time you ask. There is a good example of this when she gets to the baseball.

I so appreciate your great feedback.

Big hugs

The Vejrosta Family

Oh wow she is sooo clear!!! You can see her studying the top picture and then studying the bottoms ones till she has decided which one. Her arms look more of her thought process - she seems to move them alot when she concentrates hard. Her eye pointing and facial expression is perfect when she has it sussed!!!
What a great girl!!
